Daily Knitting Report:
My grey shawl is done!
Here it is being blocked.
It's huge --67" across. It would be larger if I had had the room to block the border. But I didn't, and I'm not worrying about it. It's not really the kind of lace project that HAS to be blocked to death to show it off.
BTW, I was standing on a chair and STILL couldn't fit the whole thing in.
(I love the way the yo's spiral out. Heck, I just love spirals. Makes me thing of spiral galaxies and other such wonderful things. I've got a pattern for a spiral doily I'm probably going to make some day. I rarely make the same pattern more than once, but I loves me some spirals.)
Jeezopete, if I keep this up, I might have to consider myself slightly productive! Now I get to finish the Crystal Cove pullover and a couple of pairs of socks. I knitted a couple of rows on the Mommes doily for the Doily KnitAlong last night. I like doing the doily -- it's interesting and fun. But right now I've got it on a Plymoth bamboo #1 needle. Boy do I hate this needle. It was my first one of this brand in this size. The joins are (IMHO) horrible. There's a bump where the plastic cable goes into a brass ferrule, and then another bump where the brass ferrule meets the bamboo needle. Working my thread across those two bumps is Not Fun. But my other #1s are all tied up in pairs of socks. Hence the push to finish the socks and get my Addi back for the doily!
Dear Robert and I will be off to Fripp Island early Monday morning, so no updates for a week. But maybe I'll have at least one sock done by the time I get back! Y'all be good, now, and have fun.
